Can I claim my girlfriend as a dependent and her kids as qualifying children?
Asked by: livingeditor
They have lived with me all year. Neither one of us is married and she is a stay at home Mom. They are not my children, only hers. I’ve been told because she has no income, I can claim her as a dependent. (What would I choose for the relationship? i.e son, daughter etc..) Can I claim her children as qualifying children and get EIC and Child Tax Credit? If so how?
